I love this series. I was taught to not judge a book by it's cover, but, hey, the covers on this series are great! I love apples and mysteries, that's what drew me in. Ms. Connolly did not disappoint. Love the first ONE BAD APPLE and had to get the rest!! Love the recipes included also. Can't wait to read the next.

The third book in this series brings us closer to the main characters.... Meg and Seth's romance moves right along and we learn more about Bree. The mystery was a little weak. I would have liked to see a little more suspense and less information about the restaurant that opened. I think perhaps the author was on a diet when she wrote this book-- she was a little too 'heavy' about informing the reader of healthy sustainable foods. I've been going to Farmers' Markets for a long time and was hoping for more twists and turns and less to do about sustainable eating. I found myself wanting to hop over to Joann Fluke's Hannah Swensen Series and bring a few cookies into the new restaurant! I loved reading about the apple orchard in this third book and I was kept guessing until the end. All in all this is a great, great series!

In the third installment of her Orchard series Meg Corey connects a trio of young people to a local realtor to help them in their search for a local for a new restaurant. They are young, ambitious, and would like to utilize locally grown products in their business which would be a boon to Granford. When one of the trio is found dead at a local farm events begin to unfold to show different aspects of each of the characters involved from the Select Board to Lauren, an old friend of Meg's from the city, to Meg's nemisis Detective Bill Marcus. Ms. Connolly continues to deliver a tightly written mystery with interesting and engaging characters in a comfortable and charming setting. The goats are delightful as well.

I like to read a mystery without even looking at the plot teaser on the back cover so I can experience the story just the way the author presents it, with no foreknowledge of who will die and how. That was especially important with this book and really made this book more enjoyable, as the discovery of the body came in a great way -- if you weren't anticipating it after reading the back cover. I had read part of the third book in the series but decided to go back and find the first book before finishing the third. The first one is good but the third one (now finished) is better. I just got the second one, so you can see I like the series.

In my opinion this book was slower than the first two...a little harder to get into. It took longer to get to the murder. On the plus side this one was harder to figure out whodunit. It's still worth reading if for nothing more than to find out what's going on with Meg, Seth, and everyone else in Granford.

I really got into this book. For a new series it really started off good. The characters are really interesting. They seem to go together.I like reading about the apple farm. I hope to read many more of these books.

This third book continues to hook me on this series! The characters continue to grow, the town opens up a bit more, and the investment of my time was rewarded with another unique read. I love this series and learn so much as each story unfolds. On to the next one!

RED DELICIOUS DEATH is title #3 in Shelia Connolly’s ORCHARD MYSTERY SERIES. I enjoyed this title as much as the first two and hope to read all the titles (eventually) in the series. The characters are down-to-earth; they develop and grow; and their personalities and situations are believable. I like the references to apples, orchard management, local history and small town life. Meg Corey is settling in and still restoring her mother’s inherited farmhouse. Meg is about to see her first apple harvest and her relationship with Seth is progressing. Meg and Seth help newcomers start up a restaurant on the village square and the events and discussions about locally produced food and simply prepared food was very interesting to me. This subject is playing out all over New England currently and makes so much sense for farmers, producers, restaurants and individuals. This was most of the storyline. The ‘mystery’ was pretty weak and the conclusion was very anti-climatic. The book ended abruptly and I wanted more information. I also found Meg’s friend, Lauren, a bit unbelievable. She really wasn’t explained or developed well. Her visit was a bit sudden and seemed to contain a hidden agenda. Perhaps these loose threads will lead to conclusions in Title #4. I hope so as I have already ordered it.
